The Animal Forest welcomed four female bison from Lone Palm Ranch, located in Johnston, South Carolina this past year. They range in age from eight years old to one year! The calf still nurses from its mother, but is growing so fast! Upon birth, calves have orange-red coats, but the fur of the Animal Forest calf is already turning to the recognizable brown and her horns are just starting to come in!
There was also the arrival of not one, but TWO skunks to the Animal Forest! The sisters are too young to be put on exhibit currently, so here’s a sneak peek of one of them receiving a check-up from the staff veterinarian. Stay tuned for an announcement of when they will make their big zoo debut!
